Top 3 recommended video editing apps for smartphones

As a blogger, I have always been so eager to explore new ideas and right now, I started my quest in vlogging (video blogging).

I have friends who does video blogging and I found them very inspiring. (Y) One of those I follow the most is my ex-co-worker and now fellow blogger, John of Four-eyed Laagan and the person behind the blog Cebu Finest, Flip (Philip). I was inspired on how they create vlogs and it made me want to do so as well. Other vlogging inspirations include Wil Dasovich for his vlogs and Erwan Heusaff of The Fat Kid Inside and still following more local vloggers here in Cebu.

Since I do not have the luxury of having a very nice DSLR camera or an HD video recorder, I am currently using my smartphone for all the vlogs I create. And I plan to maintain using it because I also want to maintain my trademark as a mobile-first person. I have few video editors on my laptop but I didn’t actually have the luxury of time to use them.

After thorough research and testing, I finally found those mobile applications that suit my need as an aspiring vlogger and they are the following:
